Weekly Parent Letter
March 25, 2021
Thank you to everyone who worked to make the Catholic United Financial Raffle and our Flurry of Fun a success! I have not seen the final numbers, but I heard that both events exceeded our goals. I am always awed by the generosity of our community!
This afternoon we will be offering an Open House from 3-6 pm for all who wish to visit the school. Please register with the school office.
Penny Panic is now underway! This is a very fun almsgiving event (Did I just put those two words together?) in which students bring pennies and pop tabs to put into their own classroom jars and silver coins and dollars to bless other classrooms with. The classroom with the most pennies and pop tabs earns a prize as well as the classroom with the most money overall. These funds do not stay in the school, but are donated to an organization of the student council’s choosing.
The Science Fair will be held on Friday, March 26th with the 3rd-6th grades participating.
The St. Edward's Education Committee is hosting a Drive Through Lenten Fish Fry tomorrow night, (Friday, March 26th). They will be serving from 4:30-7:30 p.m. $10 per meal. As a thank you to the Knights of Columbus for donating all of their proceeds from this fish fry to the school, we need all hands on deck to help with the fish fry. The link to sign up is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A094DA9AE2AA6F94-drive1
Living Stations of the Cross will follow the Fish Fry at 7:00 p.m. in the church. This is one of my favorite traditions here at St. Edward School.
The Schoenstatt Girls Group will meet at the Knights Hall on March 29, 2021, from 3:15-4:30PM. Snacks will not be provided, but the girls can bring a snack along to eat when they first arrive.
Our next school Mass will be held on Wednesday, March 31st at 10:30 am. The 5th and 6th grades will be leading us.
There will be no school at St. Edward School on Thursday, Friday and Monday, April 1st-5th for Easter Break. We will return to class on April 6th, 2021.
And just like that, hiring season is upon us and you are my best source of leads. We are looking to hire: A Montessori Children’s House Guide or Helper. Applicants must be willing to be educated in the Montessori philosophy and methodology and have the ability and dedication to put the key concepts into practice.
Summer Program Director and Helpers. These are temporary positions running from June 1 – Aug. 13, 2021. Applicants will be responsible for the supervision of children within the program and implementation of programs undertaken by the Principal and Director.
May God Bless, Mrs. Garvey
